Le lieu est absolument magnifique (en particulier la verrière, où il y a le bar), on fait difficilement plus agréable comme cadre. Le service est top également, le personnel est très aimable et serviable. Le repas était également parfait, tout était très bon. Je recommande 1000 fois ce restaurant ! Un incontournable

We had an brilliant night in the Grayson for my boyfriends 21st birthday, the food was excellent and presented really well. I had the chicken supreme and my boyfriend had the gnocchi which were both delicious. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, our waiter John was outstanding and really went the extra mile to make sure the night was special.

Fantastic experience and great atmosphere. Great service and staff are so friendly. It was our wedding anniversary and it was a great spot to go for the occasion. I like how it is over a few floors and has a couple of smaller rooms with eating. Looking forward to our next visit.

Ok, but not what we were expecting. Looked very different from the pictures shown on the restaurant's page. No one asked if we were ok, not really the place if you like to feel welcome. The room was extremely poor lit, very noisy, floor shaking every time waiter passed bye. Not all of the food ordered arrived, but there was no reaction after we commented on it except it we would like some desserts. Which we didn't.

The Grayson is a lovely old house converted to a stylish restaurant. We were seated in the Bar room. I found this room a little stuffy personally - a little too close for comfort. I feel the restaurant should space guests away from other tables as much as possible , I truly felt like we were in the neighboring couples faces. A little awkward to say the least. The food was delicious. Slow braised lamb was delectable. As was the steak and chips. Starter if foie gras was amazing. Service was good and prices very reasonable.good location to the Shelbourne Hotel.

The fillet steak was world-class! Great service and lovely table by the window. Considering how close the tables are, the noise level is very good, maybe because of the high ceilings.

Such a lovely location, with a few floors of different style dining rooms. Service was a little slow to start but once our order was taken it was good after that. Food was really tasty and menu has a nice selection. Music is fairly loud but at a table of 5 we could still hear each other talking so it was ok. I’d definitely return.

All of the staff were incredibly polite with the exception of our waiter. We had to order our own drinks at the bar on three separate occasions, the waiter was annoyed at us for doing this despite the fact he wasn’t available to take our orders.

Lovely setting. Quite absent staff and had our order taken incorrectly. One of us had to eat by ourselves then by the time the order was corrected it was 15 minutes later and the other person had to eat alone. Beautiful setting but service was not great

Booked a high top table. Not where we were seated. Presumed we'd be in High top in conservatory but instead we were in a small room next to a large group table. Not the ambiance expected

Fabulous food and staff, interior is gorgeous and the staff were more than gracious and attentive would highly recommend. The food is nearly underpriced considering the quality, presentation and attention to detail. Couldn’t of asked for more!

Portions were a little small but the service was amazing and the food was delicious. However, they say pricing is €31-€50 and all five of us spent around €60. Delicious none the less and the servers were so nice. Would come back. Would recommend xxx

Very friendly and attentive staff, that went out of their way to accommodate us with every request. The food was amazing, especially the Nduja fries and mushroom gnocchi! A great experience from start to finish - cannot fault it. Would recommend for date night, celebration, catch up with friends or business meal.

Food was absolutely incredible, we got a steak and the chicken supreme. So delicious!! Staff was really lovely. Only thing is that we had booked for the terrace and were not informed there was a wedding on and so had to sit in the front. This was no issue at all however I would've dressed warmer if I knew! It was a bit cold but overall we had a great experience, food was amazing and we are 1000% coming back. The prices were normal for restaurants of that level, lovely place.

We really enjoyed the vibes and sense of humour the staff have. The food and dessert were all delicious. The layout and the seating arrangement were all nice. The only room for improvement was the level of noise of people sitting next table brought to us, apparently they were quite enjoying their time chatting with significant voice volume. Everything else was fine.
